Key messageThroughfall nutrient fluxes were generally higher in a mixed stand than in a pure stand of Oriental beech. Throughfall fluxes were higher than bulk precipitation fluxes except for nitrogen and indicate higher canopy uptake of this element in the pure stand compared to the mixed stand.ContextOriental beech is an economically relevant tree species for Iran and adjacent countries. Yet little is known about nutrient cycling in Oriental beech stands and the influence of the degree of… CONTINUE READING
